The Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center, which serves the greater Houston area, has been severely affected by Hurricane Harvey. New York Blood Center, along with other blood centers, has already begun sending blood and platelets so that patient needs can be met. Your help is needed to keep the local blood supply strong.
O-negative blood donors are considered "universal," and their blood type is needed most readily in trauma situations and emergency departments across the country. Due to its high demand, O-negative blood is in short supply, and NYBC encourages individuals with this blood type to consider stepping forward and donating today.
The entire donation process takes less than an hour, and a single donation can be used to save multiple lives. Please consider donating today!
